Velodyne vLEVE Headphones Unveiled
Featuring Designer Interchangeable Skins, Headphones are Stylish, Sonically Sensational – and the Very Latest in Wearable Technology
What’s the sound of fashion forward?
In a word – according to audio pioneer Velodyne Acoustics (www.velodyne.com) – “vLeve.”
Velodyne’s on-ear vLeve headphones are available with designer skins that enable music lovers to engage in the art of personalization, matching the style to the sound. vLeve and its optional skins – 35 and counting – will be on display at 2014 International CES, under way from Jan. 7 through Jan. 10.
Designed by Marta Hall, international artist and Velodyne president, vLeve headphones are available in matte black and satin silver, and carry an MSRP of $219. Designer accessory skins – silicon-based and flexible, with clean snapping edges — start at $39. In addition to making a fashion statement, skins offer extra protection for headphones.
The look of Velodyne’s “v” series of headphones — a signature inverted teardrop with a slim, minimal profile – reflects Hall’s distinctive, stylish design. Bringing the creative spirit to Velodyne, Hall suggests that the skins are what wearable technology is all about.
“The Velodyne vLeve is ideal for those who value both high-quality sound and high style,” Hall said. “Our designer skins add a dramatic new dimension to the product – they’re a means for consumers to personalize their headphones while engaging with artists.”
